Down by the River Where the Dead Men Go is a 1995 book by novelist George Pelecanos. It is the third book of a trilogy with the same protagonist, Nick Stefanos. In a scene in the movie "Shallow Hal," the main character is seen reading this book.
At this stage he struggles with his growing unhappiness and tries to drench it in alcohol. One night after too many drinks, Nick Stefanos gets drawn into the murder of Calvin Jeter, and his conscience pulls him back to his earlier occupation. It becomes a journey through the harshest part of the American capital and the blackest part of the human soul.
